Some of the battery/capacitor flash bulb guns use a battery with a higher voltage than is safe for many (or perhaps all) digital cameras. I don't have time to check the specs on the Wein Safe-Sync...

I've always liked 4x5 film. It is big enough to record fine detail. Equipment is plentiful. If you go for analog printing, 4x5 enlargers should be fairly plentiful and not too huge. The film is a lot...

The view camera I've most used was a Burke & James flatbed 5x7, often with a 4x5 back. It is very basic, but does everything a view camera should do. It uses the popular 4" square lens board of its...

LF will be simple if Bethe is available to teach you. Her Chamonix has a few peculiarities that I don't like and would keep me from using that type. However, they are popular, so using them can't be...

It's been too long since I've taken a day just for photography, despite the fall leaves this year being the best in many years. Two days ago I did get up early for a sunrise to satisfy a camera club...

Bethe uses a light weight 4x5 Chamonix from China, and does some good work with it. Over several decades I've accumulated a variety of 4x5 and 5x7 cameras. Some decent older ones can be bought used...

I agree that 6x7 or 6x9 is a better format than the smaller ones. 6x9 is a familiar ratio to us who were raised on 35mm. One may crop a little from the ends to fit many frames or mats, but we have...

Bethe uses a 4x5. If you lived close by, I could loan you a 4x5. Development can be done in a perfectly dark darkroom in trays. A few scanners do a good enough job of scanning 4x5 negatives to...

I have a few old 120 film cameras, but rarely use them. A 6x7 or 6x9 camera is just halfway between 35mm and 4x5, and would be logical. 6x4.5 has too little advantage over the more flexible 35mm...
